Sean is a super cool guy, very easy to arrange pick-up and drop offs for the boards, and he had a good selection. I'm from CA and have gone to him last 2 summers when I was in Maui to get a board for a week. Highly recommend him!! Mahalo!!

Our son had been skim boarding when we visited Maui a few times a year, but wanted to step it up with some new skills. I found Sean with Skim Hawaii online and set up an appointment for a private lesson the next day. So glad we did! Sean's enthusiasm is contagious! He was able to quickly assess skill level,... More

Every winter I am lucky enough to be "dragged" to Hawaii by my in-laws. This year I decided that I wanted to do something more challenging/demanding than body boarding and less time consuming/complicated than rent and lug around a surfboard...so I looked up skimboard rentals. This ended up being a bit of a challenge, especially for someone 6'4" ~200lbs, but... More

Sean is a real pro. He had our two young kids skimmimg down the beach in no time at all. He also had great quality boards to meet the conditions so the experience is more fun. Definitely recommended and will use Skim Hawaii again!

My 16 year old son wanted to bring his skim board to Maui but that was going to cost us $100 each way in oversize luggage fees! We found Skim Hawaii online and decided to rent instead. That was the way to go! It was a quality board at a reasonable rate plus Sean delivered it to our hotel. My... More

To all perspective renters: Skim Hawaii is AMAZING. I am from Seattle, WA and I love skimming. I'm used to flat land skimming so I was nervous about trying out wave skimming and I was a little intimidated about where to rent from/who to talk to. Sean was so sweet and picked out the perfect board for me. It took... More

I Live in Orange County CA and I do a lot of skimboarding and wasn't really planning on skimboarding here in Maui but Sean hooked it up great guy and couldn't complain one bit. I had a lot of fun and it was worth every penny. Thank you Sean once again
